Mary Lou Hernandez: Galveston Elementary School, Chandler

Dean of Students, Mr. Chris Reuter, arranged the surprise presentation to take place during a routine staff meeting. Fourth grade teacher, Ms. Hernandez, received many nominations from peers and parents. She has been teaching for 15 years, and has been known to routinely dip into her own pockets in excess of $2,000 a year for her students!

One nomination glowed that she "teach[es] [her students] not only the standard curriculum, but also the importance of honesty and respect for their peers,” and that she says “the best recognition comes from her students."

A sincere congratulations to Ms. Hernandez!

Dipping into Their Pockets

In 2010, the National School Supply and Equipment Association (NSSEA) found that 92 percent of teachers spend significant amounts of their own money on classroom necessities and teaching materials.

Over $1.33 billion dollars was spent, in fact, out of the pockets of U.S. teachers to provide for their students.

"Helping valley children through our Teacher Appreciation program has been such a great experience so far, and we hope to continue to raise awareness about the needs of Arizona classrooms. We have met some of the most amazing, caring teachers through this program and we know there are many more out there, we can’t wait to meet them all," exclaimed injury lawyer Alexis Breyer.
